Exciting News: Purple Lizard Maps Partners with HiiKER 

At Purple Lizard Maps, we're always on the lookout for ways to elevate your outdoor experiences. That's why we're thrilled to announce our latest collaboration with HiiKER, an innovative hiking app company founded in Ireland.

This partnership marks our debut as HiiKER's first-ever US partner, bringing together two organizations with a shared commitment to quality and adventure.

HiiKER is dedicated to providing hikers with top-notch tools designed by and for hikers. Their mission is to partner with the best mapping organizations worldwide, empowering users to explore beyond the lines on the map.

We couldn’t be more excited to join forces with a company that mirrors our passion for adventure and precision.

This partnership with HiiKER is our second digital collaboration, following our successful integration with Avenza Maps in 2023.

We understand that many of our customers incorporate digital map technology into their adventures. Our digital partnerships ensure you have access to the best of both worlds—traditional, beautifully crafted maps and cutting-edge digital technology.

Paul Finlay, CEO and Founder of HiiKER, expressed his excitement about the partnership:

"We have been following Michael and his team’s work at Purple Lizard for a long time now. Their attention to detail and ethos of empowering their customers to create their own adventure is something that truly resonates with HiiKER. We know our users are going to love using Purple Lizard Maps."

Michael Hermann, our founder and lead cartographer, shared his thoughts on this exciting collaboration:

"We are proud HiiKER selected Purple Lizard Maps as their first independent mapping partner in the US. We chose this partnership because, like us, the HiiKER team has crafted a map experience curated by and for the outdoor adventure user.

Their commitment to an exceptional, high quality, extremely user-friendly app-based map experience makes HiiKER a perfect fit as a digital partner. We know our customers, many of whom use both digital and traditional Purple Lizard Maps for their adventures, will love the Purple Lizard Map library on HiiKER."

Starting in June, HiiKER PRO+ users will have access to the entire Purple Lizard Maps library, featuring 18 meticulously designed maps. These maps can be used alongside HiiKER's fantastic features, including 3D maps, route planning, navigation and recording, custom waypoints, and points of interest (POI). 

Get ready to enhance your outdoor adventures with Purple Lizard Maps on HiiKER.

Happy exploring!
